The application of a triform propaganda analysis model to five of Adolf Hitler's broadcasts / by Teresa K. Glaspie.
This thesis analyzes five of Adolf Hitler's radio broadcasts. It examines the broadcasts utilizing a triform propaganda analytical model. It was hypothesized that utilizing a propaganda model which examined historical, psychological, and linguistic aspects would increase understanding of types and styles of propaganda utilized by the Nazi Propaganda Ministry. Results reveal that Adolf Hitler did not solely employ black propaganda techniques, as many previous studies suggest. Information obtained from the analysis indicates that Hitler utilized a complex network of attitude manipulation techniques in order to achieve his goals. Employment of the network required Hitler to adapt to his listeners psychologically, linguistically, and contextually. The style and type of propaganda utilized during a given speech reflect the psychological and contextual status of the listeners at the time of the broadcast.
